Skin Care

skin-careDaily skin treatment is an essential part of restoring and maintaining a healthy and more youthful appearance.

Many products are available over the counter (OTC) or by prescription through physician’s offices. The basic principle is to exfoliate the superficial layers of skin cells, which show the effects of aging and sun damage. This process reduces the appearance of rhytids (wrinkles) and age spots. Bleaching creams or lotions may be used to fade dark pigmented spots. The degree of exfoliation varies from superficial to deep depending on the use of chemical peel solution or laser.

Dr. Nickodem can assess your skin type and determine what approach would give you the most desirable results.

PROLITE Hair Removal

Laser hair reduction safely and effectively rids patients of unwanted dark hair growth. Pigmentation changes may occur so the procedure cannot be performed on suntanned skin. Hair must have pigment to absorb the laser light therefore, gray, blonde and red hair colors are unsuccessfully treated.

PROLITE Vascular and Pigment Treatment

The Prolite is an intense pulsed light device used for the treatment of benign vascular and pigmented lesions. The purpose of this procedure is to lighten, fade, or remove benign blood vessels, birthmarks, sun damage/pigmentation spots, spider leg veinsm and/or stretch marks.
